Join us to work on the next-gen platform for zero-trust security! 

Who We Are 

Cisco Tetration is focused on providing a security solution to protect customer workloads whether they are running in data centers, in the cloud, or a hybrid of both. Tetration gives customers a unified platform to monitor workload activity and identify the activity patterns to build Application Dependency Maps. Building upon this information, Tetration allows customers to enforce security policies as close to the workloads as possible, in order to achieve micro-segmentation and zero-trust security. 

 

The Tetration team is seeking motivated Software Engineers to join the policy enforcement team. The team is responsible for transforming high level policy definitions into workload-specific policies that can be applied across a heterogenous network. We work with Go, Java, C++ and Python and we go deep into Linux, TCP/IP networking and Kubernetes. We enjoy understanding complicated systems and integrating them in a way that makes our customers' life easier. 

What You Will Do 

At the policy enforcement team, you will get a unique opportunity to contribute to different areas of the software development process. You will share in designing and implementing new features to enable enforcing fine-grained security policies within new and existing environments. You will understand a complex distributed system that is running inside Tetration and write end to end tests for it. You will help debug issues that come up in testing, as well as document, and present your work to colleagues and support engineers. In addition, you will have access to many experienced engineers who are always willing to help.  

 

You are an ideal candidate if you have a solid background in Linux, Networking and Systems development. But above all, you will succeed with us if you have a strong appetite to learn and a high sense of ownership and drive for quality. 

Your day-to-day job will include 

                Working with other team members to design and develop new security features for the Tetration platform 

                Understanding existing features and maintaining them in response to customer requests or bug reports 

                Delivering high quality code with tests and documentation 

                Writing and maintaining end-to-end tests for the policy enforcement features 

                Presenting your work to teammates and training engineers to support the features you implement 

                Reviewing code from other teammates 

Required skills 

                Strong CS foundation (algorithms, data-structures, etc.) 

                Experience with networking concepts (TCP/IP, Routing, load-balancing, etc.) 

                Experience with using and debugging Linux environments 

                BS degree in CS 

                High attention to detail and insistence on quality 

                Self-motivation to learn 

You are ahead if you have 

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference powering an inclusive future for all.
We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we're "old" (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but we're also a software company. And a security company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do - you can't put us in a box!
But "Digital Transformation" is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)
Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, give our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, bold steps, and take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a dedication to equality for all, there is no moving forward.
So, you have colorful hair? Don't care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That's cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us! #WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference powering an inclusive future for all.
